Last day of September

Actually according to our time zone we are already October 1st. In September I had quite a few swaps and we also celebrated our New Year.
My first swap was via CAPC, we had to send either a thumb or finger pincushion and one more item if we chose. My partner for this swap was Merle from Australia, I chose to make for her both a thumb and a finger pincushion as you can see from the photo below.

Merle also sent a photo when she received her swap, doesn't it look nice on her hand and see how her mail polish matches the color of the small flowers of the pincushions.

I made a felt cake for Eyal and Inbar, I haven't been able to give it to them yet so I hope they like it.

Carla has received her swap from me so I can now post a photo of it.

I have two more photos to add but because the recipients have not received them yet I will not post them at the moment.

I am participating in the hug swap hosted by Jenny from Elefantz and Vicki from Tozz's blogs. The good news is that my partner for this swap is Maria from Holland. Yippee!!!!!

My other good news is that I received my Summer Pincushion swap from Jill in Canada. The package took almost 3 months on to arrive. Here is what Jill sent me, a beautiful pincushion in very pretty colors, a small pincushion filled with emery and a packet flat head pins. Jill just celebrated her 17th wedding anniversary, congratulations Jill.

These are a few little goodies I sent to my dear friend Susan in Texas. Susan has been having a very hard time health-wise this past month so hopefully they were able to cheer her up. Take care Susan my friend and keep well.

This next photo is of the summer swap I sent to Sherri in place of Mikki who was sick. A pair of small baby size flip flops and a scissor fob.
This was the swap I sent to Miet, a large flip flop and some other goodies, sadly Miet's package to me has gotten lost in the mail.

You will remember that I sent a swap to Simona in Croatia, here is a photo of Simona, doesn't she look nice. Hello Simona.

Here are a couple more pincushions I have been working on.

I love the colored one, it is all one thread that changes color as it goes along, wish I could get some more of it.
When Mikki was better we asked that she send her swap to me instead of to Sherri so here is my ice cream cone and thimble. Thank you Mikki.

I'm also making a felt cake for Eyal and Inbar, I had to get a few more small items to make it special so when I've finished it I'll take some photos. Till next time,
